Let’s Create a Virtual Museum!

Are you missing the Museum? Since we can’t walk through the Museum galleries, let’s create our own virtual weekly exhibit using a piece from the permanent collection.

Here’s how it works:

  • Every Monday, starting today, we will post a new artwork featuring a specific animal from our collection on Facebook and Instagram.
  • You then paint, draw, sculpt, photograph, create anything that features that animal. Get creative!
  • Share your work using the hashtag #WildlifeartJH or tag us, @WildlifeartJH
  • We will share your work on our social media, creating a new exhibition every week!

Current Exhibits:

April 6: Bison
April 13: Big Cats
April 20: Birds
April 27: Bears
May 4: Fish
May 11: Wolves

In addition to Facebook albums, each week’s theme can be viewed on the story highlights on Instagram.

Join in on the fun!

What People Are Saying

Although I am not a big fan of Western art, I thoroughly enjoyed the museum. The sculpture was stunning, and the views from the museum were beautiful. I learned so much about American artists, and the history of the difficulty in having wildlife paintings accepted by artists' organizations was fascinating. A lovely visit.
